Agreed, anyone know when the last time the Senate has nominated a fellow Senator for the Supreme Court? I can't think of anything in recent history. Putting Cruz on the court would be the ultimate fuck you to a guy that has wanted to be president since he was 10 Anything to keep Ted Cruz out of sig...

I really, really think they're going to put up Thapar though. They've been grooming him for years and his friendship with McConnell wins him a lot of points. This White House seems to operate on people they know rather than CVs more than any other Administration in memory. Note all the Wall Street ...

It's like how I feel over Gorsuch, I dislike his judicial philosophy, but all things considered he seems like a decent family man. As Therm said, could be Cruz or Cotton, which...yikes. Justice Cruz would be just the most absolutley hilarious shit to me and it would add so much to 2020 :lol: Sounds...

Strict originalist, Catholic, clearly very ambitious, hard-working and driven etc etc. Probably not a monster a la Thomas or Kavanaugh, probably a nice enough person in fact, but with a strongly hard-line Conservative judicial philosophy.

Time will tell. I think instances such as a police officer executing a black man in cold blood evoke a more visceral, immediate reaction in people than a contentious hearing in Congress, and that is definitely understandable. RBG was beloved, and I'm torn up about it, but all the political wonks ou...

Protests, yeah, we had protests over Kavanaugh as well. But large-scale riots? Well...come to think of it, maybe, we've gotten **better at rioting this past year, though the same types who protested over Kavanaugh (largely middle-aged women) don't seem to be the types to riot. Ya but RBG was pretty...

Oh c'mon Therm, what the hell are you doing? McConnell isn't going to be killed, we're not going to have massive riots in the streets because of this untimely death of RBG.

Very good point, I suspect there is a chance they still might have to. Much of the GOP is going to fight tooth and nail between now and January. Oh, I have no doubt, but I don't think we'll see anything happen before the General. It'll have to happen in the lame duck session because McConnell will ...

You could argue that the lockdowns were a restriction on freedom (which they were), which had some pretty major consequences. Though I still maintain that lockdowns were both beneficial and necessary (unless you wanted millions dead), but were poorly handled and not enough help was given to the peo...

Nail on the head, Romney will definitely vote for it, barring a Kavanaugh-esque scenario, I don't know why people are pretending that anybody but Murkowski and Collins are voting No (on the GOP side). Murkowski and Collins will vote Present not no which makes it easier for the GOP. 'Kowski only vot...

Except someone actually tried not two years ago and nothing happened. Stop. RBG wasn’t dead and it wasn’t McConnell. I’m just telling you what I’ve been hearing. The amount of people who want McConnell dead has increased greatly. And if McConnell gets killed before he can bring up a vote then well ...

Yeah Romney already rolled his back to a “no comment” I could fully see him voting in favor in that case. He might not like Trump but he still is a Republican and sees the opportunity this is.

Since Biden helped get conservative justices Scalia and Thomas onto the Supreme Court back when he was a senator , I still see no reason to believe any future SC picks he might make if he wins would be good.
